"Malaysia Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad and the Sultan of Johor are seen in a blue Proton Saga... "When asked whether there is any tension with the sultan, Dr Mahathir said: “No, I don’t see anything because I went to see him and he drove me to the airport. I don’t want to comment on the sultans because if I say anything that is not good then it’s not nice because he is the sultan”"

"in the Singapore press and in Singapore in general, people have this v brainless idea that when advancing an argument you must have a thesis and an antithesis and must come to a balanced conclusion. This is delusory. For example, if I were to debate about holocaust denial, the proper response to those proponents of such a disgusting world view would be 'fuck you', not 'ok, write an article and we'll come to a balanced conclusion'."


Someone: "once i walked into rj bridge club and then someone blurted out my blog address in my face
and i was like huh? and that guy went, have you ever read agagooga? gssq?
he said u were interested in my blog
anyway he then proceeded to tell me your life history and about how i should read your blog
and i was like fuck you lah can we play bridge? and he was like yeah. so we played bridge."

Someone else: i told them i memorised all the reasons for the why-be-a-doc question

Me: you need to know how to fake insecerity
or another gambit is to say to them "screw it. everyone's lying to you. let me tell you my real reasons"

Someone else: come on lah. EVERYONE who wants to enter medicine wants to earn big bucks and be the envy of the society. it's just that the degree of this kind of thinking is different for different people
even the most altruistic doc out there wants to earn big bucks

will u work for over 24 hour shifts and have to sleep, eat and bathe in the hospital if u are paid peanuts? and most of the surgeons have to do this for a few times a week

Me: it's like teaching
must be a "passion"

Someone else: passion to earn lots of $$!:D
and no matter how much they complain they have to slog like hours just to earn 'so little'

i myself saw toilet cleaners who have to work 12 hours a day in the hospital and paid thousands of dollars less
and those toilet cleaners earn so little they have to stay at the hospital
some may even get their salaries cheated. !@$#$%^&!
i heard a woman cried because they refuse to give her one month's salary

but can u imagine some people out there have to raise a family with those few hundred $$?

so u can't blame students entering med because they want to be rich and have financial security
no body says they have a passion to serve the public by washing toilets, or they enjoy washing toilets so they want to be toilet cleaners

Me: :P
I think those are noble causes
I don't get why medicine is so treasured

Someone else: i dont too. being able to cure other people doesnt mean u're a god

Me: I think one rejoinder in interviews is "why not be a nurse?"

Someone: It's people like the security guard who says, "I'm voting for the PAP because they gave me money" (referring to the recent progress package) that actually makes me feel ashamed of living here.

the reason i'm planning to transfer halfway through my studies to us, and apply for pr or something.
singapore has no hope
